Two great programmes on one DVD.

Painting the Town. Come to the historic old town of Leigh on Sea at the mouth of the Thames estuary. In the company of Essex artist John Fryer, discover some of the history of this ancient fishing village. Listen to some of the stories that have grown up around the town over the centuries. This programme is a relaxing mix of local stories, archive film, photographs and a few painting tips as well.

Southend Safari takes you on a tour of the busiest town in Essex, looking at the astonishing variety and wealth of its wildlife. See Belfairs Nature Reserve, the first in the country, with its rich plant life and mysterious fungi, the Belton Hills, with its flowers and butterflies, the wonderful ancient hedgerows of Edwards Hall Park and, of course, the wildlife of the mudflats and saltings. You'll discover surprising features of interest in Southend parks, gardens, roadside verges, churchyards and even waste ground. The safari ends with a visit to a town garden to see how it can be turned into a haven for wildlife.
